Selling a house can be stressful - we get that!  Lots of decisions, preparations, keeping it clean, waiting for a buyer, dealing with offers, and advancing to the closing table – all of these steps can involve discomfort. This is a huge financial transaction with many emotional aspects. But you can get it done – and it may even be easier than you anticipate.

One thing to keep in mind is that you're not alone. An experienced, professional real estate agent can guide you through the process, help resolve any issues that come up, and ensure that your home sells for the optimal price in a timely manner.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when putting your home on the market and learning how to sell your house:

  • What year was your house built?

  • Do your lights flicker, or breakers pop?

  • Do you have an older electrical panel?

  • Do you have aluminum wiring, or knob and tube?

  • What condition is your plumbing in?

  • How old is your hvac or air conditioner?

  • How often do you replace your a/c filters?

  • Do you have a water softener?

  • Is your roof in good condition?

  • Are your windows in good condition?

  • What condition is your foundation in?

  • If you have a deck or patio, what condition are they in?

  • Do you have any water problems?

  • Have you had problems with mold and mildew?​

Your house needs to be neat, clean and orderly in preparing it for sale. Organizing and pre-packing items that are not regularly used will create a spacious feeling. Storage is one of the top items on a buyer’s list; therefore it’s necessary to show that your home has the space desired.

Things to think about...….

  • Does each room in your house feel spacious?

  • Is your house clean from top to bottom?

  • Pre-pack all items that you do not need while selling your house. Pre-pack off-season clothing and items

  • Decide where you can store your boxes and extra items

  • How does your garage look?

  • If your garage is unfinished and used for storage, how does it look?
